  1. Low end Biostar are NOT known as a "quality" MB.
    My prefernece is gigabyte or Asus.
    Side Note if you were tring to OC, you may have fried the CPU also as it depends on what was damaged on the MB.

    no need to worry bout the other components i used my little sisters computer to see if they still work she has a lga 775 comp aswell they are really good
  3. Spec wize they are almost Identical,The Biostar does have one aditional PCI 1 x and one Pci slot more than the Asus.
    The Asus is a micro atx board. Asus generally provides better MBs than biostar.
    Out of my last 5 biulds all have been Gigabyte except my last one, a ASrock Z68 MB.
